Patched SECDialer.dll - no more keypad lock in calls!

Recommended Posts

Like it says! ;)

Inspired by this post, installing this CAB will rid you of the auto-keypad lock when you start a call. This is for English language devices only.

Feedback please... i'm considering a simple toggle app too (like my OmniaSIP and OmniaTHREAD apps).

Technical info - this is the SECDialer.dll from the DXHI2 ROM, patched to not write the lock entry to registry, not to display the big graphic and re-signed to give it a valid signature.

Enjoy! :wacko:

Amazing work Paul! And only 1,5 hours after you said that it wouldn't be an easy task ;)

Can't test it myself unfortunately. A patcher would be nice so that we can apply it on our own ROM. Don't know if that is possible? I know a lot of Dutch users are waiting for a way to disable the in-call-locking.

If you can copy SECdialler off your device and attach it here, i'll patch it for you (a generic patch isn't possible i'm afraid).

If you get this, try going into the registry (using Resco Registry or similar) and settings HKLM\Security\Policies\Policies001001 to 1 instead of 2 then trying again!

Could you enlighten us how you edited the dll file? Did you use something like PE Explorer?

I'll post my dutch dll file later this evening.

Hex edited all the references to the TouchLock registry entry to stop it actually locking, the resource edited the images that should the 'click to unlock' and replaced them with 1x1 pixel images.

Genius, even if I do say so myself ;)

So if you want to do it yourself...

- Download HXD (FREE)

- Replace all instances of 'Touchlock' (unicode text) with 'DoNotLock' ;)

- Save

- Create yourself a 1x1 pixel BMP file

- Download Resource Tuner (trial version is fine)

- Locate the bitmaps that are the 'black backgrounds'

- Replace each of them with the file you created above

- IMPORTANT - these edits invalidate the signing. I used signcode.exe with the sample certificates from the WM6 SDK to resign the DLL

- Put DLL in windows directory

Job done :wacko:

Hi Paul,

I don't have this option....

Also I had already installed " Remove software installation warning" from here but still got the error even removed & reinstalled it to be certain.

Huh, well I installed on mine, pretty sure all I did was those things.

Also try soft resetting and installing before launching the phone app for the first time...

Is this HKLM\Security\Policies\Policies001001 definately the path to disable the unsigned prompt. Could it be because I had the removesecurity cab already installed be why I don't see the key?

If it works for everyone (the DLL) I'll package it into a handy app for toggling between lock on and lock off...

P

Will try it out a bit later... After I move up to HI2...

Am I right to assume that the toggle on/off will not be possible during a call, and that you will be switching between the Samsung dialer and a patched dialer DLL ?

Huh, OK, just try using Resco Explorer to copy this file to the Windows dir then (unzip first obviously)!

P

SECDialer.zip

sorry took so long to reply had to leave work...the dll worked, was that the default wm6 dialer? yes would be nice to be able to switch as I like the features on the original other than the press to unlock of course.

may have a go at learning how to build a dialer skin......
